Riders trade for Canadian receiver Brett Blaszko

Saskatchewan has sent a conditional 2018 draft pick to Winnipeg for Canuck pass catcher Brett Blaszko.

The 24-year-old was a third-round pick, 23rd overall, by the Lions in the 2016 CFL draft. He was released by B.C. during final training camp cuts this season and later picked up by the Bombers. The University of Calgary Dinos product has not played in a CFL game yet.
